Mayra Nocolasa's story

Mayra is single and with much work and dedication, she has achieved her children's independence and good habits. She used to have a general store but it proved to be unprofitable. Now, for many years she has sold bread.

Mayra is requesting her 4th infrastructure loan, this time to strengthen the internal walls of her house. At present, they are partly plywood and all need to be concrete in order to achieve more solidity. To do this, Mayra needs to purchase cement, sand, construction iron, concrete blocks, roof supports, and to pay laborers to begin the work.
